Thoughts?

Mish,

That's MUCH better. If your bleed (or should that be bleeding?) gaps at the top are 1.5mm tall you've got it cracked.

HTH,

Ian

They are nearer 2.5 mm Ian, but I think if I do a bit of 'fitting' I can make it work. If you look at the overhead photo you can see that the intakes are a little too long so if I shorten them by 1mm I think they will fit better.

Could the original measurements have been imperial and "new" ones metric perhap?

Mish - just sand a little off the top & bottom of the intake parts, then line them up at the bottom... that should lose enough thickness without risking sanding through one side or the other :S

Mish... I've never been able to get one with Squadron Green putty, and as you've expended best part of a tube on your current builds this week, I'd like to donate an almost unused tube to your battle munitions. PM me your address & I'll bung it in the post ;)

Oh my word, this is the MOST entertaining thread I've read in a while!

Sorry, Mish, not a reflection on your modelling skills - you are doing a gret job considering the kit - but I have this kit and reading this thread makes me WANT to build it in the near future.......

Now, who moved my straight jacket...?

Curiously enough, I've just used that same phrase in my Valiant thread! :lol:

Doesn't sanding make your arms ache? It makes my weak & feeble hands ache from gripping the stick & the item I'm sanding :S

It's the old tendons getting tired... I've been thinking about getting one of those work holders, but I can't see that much use for one, even though they're cheap enough. Aircraft parts tend to be odd shapes :hmmm:
